A new Apple Watch SE 2 rumor has suggested the device will come with an electrocardiogram (ECG) feature. Adding ECG would be a significant addition to the SE lineup, as it would allow users to monitor their heart health with greater accuracy. The ECG feature is already available on the Apple Watch Series 4 and above, but it has yet to appear on the SE series.

The news comes from iDropNews, which has a good track record when it comes to Apple rumors. If true, this would be a significant addition to the SE 2, which is positioned as a more budget-friendly alternative to the Apple Watch Series 7 and upcoming Apple Watch Series 8.
It’s unclear if the ECG feature will be available at launch or if it will be added in a future software update. However, given that the SE 2 is rumored to be launching later this month, we should know more soon.
According to the leak, the Apple Watch SE2 will come in 40mm and 44mm versions. In contrast, the Apple Watch Series 7 is available in 41 and 45-mm sizes.
An always-on display is also expected to be added to the SE 2. This feature has been available on previous Apple Watch models but was left out of the original SE in favor of saving battery life. Other rumored features include a faster S7 processor similar to that in the Series 7.
The leak also suggests that the SE 2 will likely launch in September 2022. If this rumor is true, it means that the SE 2 will land alongside the Apple Watch Series 8 and iPhone 14.
The SE2 could cost more than the previous model since it includes some key features and specs from the flagship models. While the exact price of SE2 is not yet known, it is rumored to be between $299 and $300.
By adding life-saving features to the affordable line of watches, Apple is likely hoping to draw in more customers and boost sales. The margin between the SE and Series 7 is significant, making the former an excellent option for budget-conscious buyers.
The SE2 and Apple Watch Series 8 will be more evenly matched by adding ECG and an always-on display. This could make the decision between the two models more difficult for consumers, but it will ultimately come down to personal choices and budget.
However, we still dont know what Apple has included in Series 8 to make it a more appealing option over the SE2. We will have to wait until Apple’s official announcement to find out.
